Apple continues to expand the reach of its products to consumers. Today, retail giant Target announced it will start to offer the iPhone November 7th in each of its 846 stores that maintain Target Mobile centers.
From rumor to fact, just like that: After weekend leaks that the iPad would soon be arriving in Wal-Mart stores, the retailer has confirmed on Monday night that it’s the real deal, and you’ll be able to buy one this Friday, October 15.
Apple’s iPad is now poised to go mainstream -- in addition to now being available at Target stores nationwide on Sunday, the iOS tablet has popped up on Amazon.com and reportedly in other stores such as Fry’s Electronics as well.
If you want an iPad, there's a few ways to go about getting one: You can opt drive to the Apple Retail Store nearest you; less sociable tablet fanatics can navigate to Apple's online retail portal and have one shipped to their front door, and for those lacking scruples or a sense of common decency, you can even wait for some one else to buy one before jumping them for it (no, we're not condoning that sort of behavior). If none of these methods for iPad procurement work for you, don't fret: you'll soon have a fourth option to pick from, as Target has announced that they'll be offering up Apple's netbook-eating darling starting October 3.
